"battleground dispatches." >> reporter: when residents of this port city wake up, even if there wasn't a storm that night, they regularly find some streets flooded from high tides. it is a far cry from the storm surges brought by sandy further up the coast, but that super- storm, which hit the week before election day, brought to the surface the issue of rising sea levels, the vulnerability of coastal cities and what can be done to protect them. in national exit polls, 64% of voters said that president obama's response to the hurricane was a factor in their decision. >> what i will be doing in the next several months is having wide ranging conversations with scientists, engineers and elected officials to find out what more can we do. >> reporter: mr. obama might look to norfolk, where they have been having those conversations for years. >> as we get more high tides and tides seem to get higher and we get more of these storms and they seem to come with a little more fury we get more and more water in our city as the days go by, so we are taking it very seriously. we talk about it nearly monthl
it is in the same spot as kind of the often chept port. -- the ancient port. you know, this is always the place where the international links have been made. >> host: andrew blum, when were these undersea cables that you referred to laid? and by whom? >> guest: well, there have been telegraph cables across z the atlantic for 150 years now. the current generation which depending on how you count whether you say individual strands or cable systems, there are about eight or or ten or some say twelve of them across the atlantic. the current generation was all laid since the broadband boom in the mid '90s in the -- i think the first one was finished in '97 until about 2002 when the last one was completed, and they're owned by a few different kinds of companies. they're owned either by very large backbone companies like level three you mentioned. they're owned by consortia of telecoms, verizon joining with british telecom joining with deutsche telecom perhaps. or a couple of them now are owned by kind of boutique companies that only own cables across the atlantic. i'm thinking in particular of the ca
the breadth of the port for this resolution and really i think it indicates a bad faith on the part of the department of rec and park to come forward now and delay this matter even further. this has been on the agenda for a long time. without any controversy and we hope you would vote in support of this resolution and move it forward. thank you very much. >> thank you. next speaker. >>> melissa collins from the sierra club. i support the resolution to remove the golf course from the natural area planning management plan. they are two different projects and should be analyzed separately. there are a number of delays and we urge you to vote on this next week. >> thank you. next speaker. if there is anyone else that would like to speak, if you would line up on the side of the room that would be helpful. next speaker. >>> good afternoon, supervisors. -- wiener and mar. my name is laura cleveland, i'm a richmond district resident. i'm here to support a voice in support of wildlife. i'm requesting you vote in favor of this proposed resolution. while i'm here for wildlife, the proposed res
the school exactly where it was in indiana, we did smart things in terms of rebuilding a port that was smarter than there was before. first and foremost, we have to find ways to not stand in the way of the smart decisions but to encourage them. with whatever money we have, that will allow the money to go farther and be smarter. a second, and you will see what we provide our supplemental request, you will see that we propose to invest in mitigation. we know from studies that for about every dollar that we invest in mitigation, we get $4 back in avoided costs over time. that is something we have to recognize as we go in. the federal government investing in these, and making a specific part of this proposal in each of the areas will be important. i would hope parted the reason the president asked me to do this, i've worked in the private sector in new york and new jersey. behooved there is a real potential here -- there is a real potential here. if we are avoiding future costs, avoiding private sector costs in the future, there should be a way to capitalize the benefits in the fu
deep water port on the east coast. we are planning to take full advantage of the panama canal and the changes coming there soon to bring commerce into virginia. we are aggressively building our rail system, going from the port of virginia west to get that traffic out west. we just announced that we are building and other highway, a tall access highway. one of the primary purposes is to bring truck trafficking from the port of the virginia inland a connected directly with i-95. that will help us bring newcomers in. i want to mention something that has been a little tabooed as of late. the governor is not ashamed of it at all. we have taken full in of it. that is incentives to business. the governor has put significant additional resources into our virginia economic development partnership. funds he has at his deposal -- disposal but also resources to build up infrastructure we need to do in virginia. the was a piece in the new york times recently that criticized the use of that. in virginia, some of the things that were pointed out as concerns, the fact that they neglected to i
of the ports and knowing that deepening needs to be there, he's shown courage when he helped us in the fight against national labor relations board and the unions that tried to take boeing down. he has shown it with his fiscal representation and the fact that he knows the value of a dollar. of he understands what every family and small business goes through, and he has stayed consistent to that. it also shows for the fact that this man loves south carolina. and he is very aware that what he does and every vote he makes affects south carolina and affects our country. and so it was with that that i knew that he was the right person. i have no doubt that he will fly through 2014. i am strongly convinced that i and the entire state will be, the entire state understands that this is the right u.s. senator for our state and for our country. what i will also tell you, and it is very important to me as a minority female that congressman scott earned this seat. he earned in this seat for the person that he is. he earned this seat for the results he has shown. he earned this seat for what i know he's
con. he called it -- lincoln. he called it land improvements. he meant ports and railroads at the time. public infrastructure is always the public's responsibility. so the question is never whether or not you're going to do it, you have to do it. the question is when does it make most sense? i would submit to you that it makes most sense today. why? because money is as cheap as it's ever going to be. every municipal government throughout this country borrows money by issuing debt bonds to underwrite the cost of building new frals. we -- infrastructure. we could be borrowing money today for about 1%. labor is cheap, equipment is cheap, because both are idling. and we clearly need the infrastructure investment. final thought on this? transportation for america, a not-for-profit organization, identifies 69,000 structurally deficient bridges in this nation. there's over 2,000 structurally deficient bridges in my state of new york. and in western new york we have 99 structurally deficient bridges. every second of every day seven cars drive on a bridge that is structurally deficient. we saw
